I am over it! I was at work Wednesday and we were wrestling around a big 100 ton porta power ram pushing hubs off a reducer. We had it tied up with a come along. Released the pressure and somehow the hook flipped out and being the smart guy I am I grabbed it. Instant pain. I was hurting. They took me down to the ER after a large amount of x-rays and a follow up MRI everything has been deemed ok just a pulled muscle.

All I can say is that I never appreciated my back not hurting. I can't even ride in my truck without squirming around in pain. Been taking some muscle relaxers and pain pills. Haven't been released back to work yet. Appointment Monday. I hope to get released for light duty. I can't stand this.

Doctor gives me a large bottle of vicadin and some kind of muscle relaxer and says this will take away your pain...no no they don't. Might dull it slightly.

Thanks guys

I just want to go back to work. Being home all day with the wife is enough to drive a man insane!

At least I get paid my full salary for up to a year. So no worries there..

I hope you can get back to work soon, as being stuck home with the wife is not good.

My wife was assaulted by a patient while working as an Emergency Room Nurse at Ireland Army Hospital. It caused severe back and neck pain. The pills didn't help but but one of her physical therapist friends taught us a help full technique. Fill styrofoam coffee cups with water and freeze them. Peel back the styro until the face of the ice is exposed. Cover the ice with a damp wash clothe and slowly rub the areas where the muscles are tight. Rub until the muscle relaxes but stop when the skin looks blotchy. It used to give Martha an hour or two of relief. If she moved, it would set up the spasms and pain again.

My back is an old injury and I found that asprin and hot showers works for me. Good Luck, Rick

Sorry to hear that. Hope you heal up soon. Take care of that back. If you rush it it makes it worse.                                                                                Roger

Hope your back gets better soon - back and tooth pain can make for a long tiresome day.  Enjoy the time with your wife - it may drive you insane but the journey will be fun if your at the wheel. :D  :D  :D

I feel for you, and hope you get relief. I've had some level of back and related hip and leg pain since 1982.

 Try to sleep on your back with extra pillows under your knees,  your legs being the heaviest limb it will take the pressure off your back I also recommend eating two vikes at bed time and a relaxer .  Call me in the morning :wave:

Yeah, I dislocated my pelvis once.
When he told me why I couldn't breathe or walk, I said " The only two people who dislocate their pelvis are porn stars and old people ... When did I change jobs?"
Most excruciating pain since circumcision but I don't remember that well.

Hope you feel better soon

Went through back pain around 28yrs old, and no fun at all!  Mine was a pinched sciatic nerve, and just took time.  Took me several minutes just to roll off the bed, usually to my knees, then several more minutes to get stood up.  After a couple weeks on anti-inflamatories it started getting better.  Hope you get better soon Aaron!  BTW....my middle name is Aaron.

I hope you have a speedy recovery!!!!!!

Problem is, the Doctors give light doses now because of people getting addicted to the pain killers, and turning to drug addiction. Personally I have never been on them. I did break my hand bad once, but refused to take the meds. My ex was on them once as well, and they didn't do squat.

Best wishes;)

I sympathize with you ,hope you get well soon & back to work , but back pain = never get over it fully just get used to it i found , in 3 separate times i have had 4 months 2 months & 3 months off work because of mine & some other minor times off ,

 

The nerve pain causing the muscle spasms & muscle retractions is the worst part , can't breathe , can't do nothing
